Pancreatic cancer does not often trigger symptoms in its earliest, most treatable stages. As it advances, it can cause:

  • Dark urine
  • Pale stools
  • Jaundice (a yellowing of the skin and eyes)
  • Pain in the middle back or belly
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Fatigue or weakness
  • Loss of appetite
  • Unintended weight loss

It’s important to remember that other, less serious conditions can cause such symptoms, too. If you’re experiencing these symptoms, see your doctor for a diagnosis.
